Vintage Ceramic Santa Figurines

DSCF8805-001

Went shopping today and found these fabulous vintage santas.  I think they are from the 80’s but not for sure.  Does anyone know?  If you’d like to have them for your collection you can visit my Etsy shop and I’ll ship them right to you.

Pink and White Button Ring

A few years ago my grandmother gave me a treasure chest full vintage buttons.  Well, it wasn’t a real treasure chest like the pirates use, but it felt like that to me.  It was really a 40-year-old blue tin with a flower design on it.  But, none the less, I was pleased to have it.  My grandmother was a seamstress in her younger days and she kept every left over from all her projects.  I always loved playing in those buttons when I was little.  She always let me create with them.  I’d sew them to scraps of fabric, use them in paper collages and of course, glue them to cards.  Just a couple of  years ago my grandmother and I sat down together and made button rings using her buttons.  It’s hard to believe that was one of the last few times we would create together.  Now she is in a total care nursing home six hours away from me so I don’t get to see her that often and she is not able to craft anymore.  I was feeling lonely for her so I thought I would take down her button tin and combine them with some of the newer ones I have acquired.  (I also save everything, I know where I get it from.) 🙂  This is one that I created.  I also have quite a few others listed in my Etsy shop.  So click on over and take a look.  You could own a piece of “grandmother love” too. 🙂

Vintage Floral Love Greeting Card

I made this lovely greeting card today using K and Company cardstock and rubber stamps from The Angel Company.  I used a lace scallop punch for the decorative edge and mounted it on coordinating cardstock.  Stamped the word “love” and tied a ribbon around the top.  Simple.  Try it today and give it to the one you love. 

If you don’t have time to make it yourself, you can purchase this one.  I’ve listed this card and several others in my Etsy store.  Click on the picture above to see for yourself.
